We loved Ernie’s! The Bulgogi was great and the popover was incredible! We always try and get here early before they sell out!

The best for lunch. Excellent Korean food from limited menu. They make their own Kimchi. The noodle soup is out of this world. Can't miss with Ernie's

Delicious Bulgogi plates and homemade soups daily along with their famous Popovers, which are superb. A friendly setting thanks to the young talented chef couple. A fun place to watch small planes take-off and land by the outside seating area.

Wonderfully prepared, friendly people and good tasting food. Popovers are incredible. The daily homemade soup is very flavorful. AND the bulgogi tacos are amazing. A "go to" locals place. And it's reasonably priced with great views at the airport. You wont be disappointed

Authentic massive popovers at 11 a.m. Had a great lunch of Korean barbecue. The chef salad was amazing. This is also the most affordable eatery that we tried while on the island.

Ernie's is a local restaurant tucked into a corner of the Friday Harbor airport. This is a place for locals and a classic airport eatery for the general aviation community. It's down home and not fancy - but the food was excellent. This is more...More
